Application payments

If you wish to apply to rent a property through MAISON Estates Ltd (the Agent), then you are required to pay a holding deposit which is equivalent to one weeks rent which is payable upon application.  It can be retained by the Agent to cover administration costs if the tenant withdraws, fails Right to Rent checks, imparts false or misleading statement or fails to take reasonable steps to enter into a tenancy. The holding deposit forms part of the first month’s rent should the tenancy proceed.

Should the Landlord or Agent withdraw from the application, then this sum will be refunded to the tenant within 7 days of withdrawal. 

Security Deposit will be capped at 5 weeks rent for rents of up to £50,000 per annum.

The following payments are permitted during terms of tenancy:

Substitution of tenant: £50.00 and/or reasonable administration costs as advised at time of request.

Changes to terms and conditions of a tenancy:  £50.00 and/or reasonable administration costs as advised at time of request.

Early termination of tenancy: The tenant is liable to pay the landlord’s agency set-up costs to remarket the property and facilitate a new tenancy.  This cost is payable to the agent in advance of remarketing.

Lost keys or security devices: Tenants are liable for actual costs of replacing lost keys or other security devices. If the loss results in changing of lock(s), the actual costs of a locksmith, new lock and replacement keys for the tenant, landlord and any other parties requiring keys will be charged to the tenant. Any associated extra costs will be chargeable at £15 per hour. 

Rent arrears: Interest on rent arrears will be charged at 3% above the Bank of England base rate and levied once the rent is over 14 days late.

Tenancies created prior to 1/6/19 are still subject to a contract renewal fee of £50.00 until 31/5/2020.

Providing a written reference to prospective landlord or agent: £65.
Maison Estates operating hourly rate is £85 which may be used to ascertain costs for changing terms and conditions to a tenancy where requested by a tenant.
